Really: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad pimps for Colin Kaepernick on Twitter (and inspires hilarious responses)

This is one of those pieces where I’m pretty sure I would only detract from the point by actually commenting on it.

I will say this: I had no idea Iranian despots followed the NFL so closely. Then again, if you do follow the NFL closely, you know much better than to think Colin Kaepernick is “one of the best” quarterbacks in the league, or even a halfway decent one during his final two seasons. You either listen to the media slobbering and think Aaron Rodgers is some sort of god, or you actually watch the games and you know Kirk Cousins is the man.

But it’s neither here nor there. The tweets tell the story today, folks:

Do you think Ahmadinejad realizes people can respond to your tweets? Ha.

And you know what? Most American liberals are more willing to speak out for Kaepernick, who slanders police officers, than they are for people like Siamak Namazi, Baque Namazi or Ramin Hossein Panahi, who are the victims of the Iranian regime for exercising the same rights as Kaepernick.

Except that they have no such rights in Iran, thanks to a system supported by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
